About Edith and Blanche
Hello and welcome to Edith and Blanche, a sustainable alternative for children's clothing and textiles!
Edith and Blanche is a family owned and operated business with the goal of creating high quality, ethically sourced, and thoughtfully produced products. We do this by using materials that have either been sourced locally from the UK, are organic, and/or dyed with natural dyes. All of our products are handmade in our studio in Portsmouth, UK.
At Edith and Blanche we believe that small things can make a big difference, which is why we aim to provide items that spark joy and are environmentally friendly.
How it all started
In 2018 I found myself in a new town starting all over again. My wife is in the military and her job requires us to move every couple of years, but this was my first move and it came with a lot of adjustments. A new town wasn't the only big change in store for our family. We decided that it was time for our little family to grow.
The journey into parenthood led me down a rabbit hole for baby items that were modern, beautifully designed, comfortable, and ethically made, but never really finding things that ticked all my boxes.
With my background in textiles, fashion, and design research, I had always wanted to start my own design studio and thought this was the perfect opportunity to create a studio that could travel with me and grow with our family. After much deliberation, I decided to be brave and follow my heart, thus Edith and Blanche was born.
